You my friend, are suffering lag. Or the guy your are fighting is lagging terribly. 15 ft knives existed before 2.0, but now with extended reach it takes a good amount of lag to get over 5 ft.
Seriously the old 1.07 knife was more reliable with or without lag.
I knew that the knife can reach me from the other side of the ammo crates or from the other side of the street.
I have no problem getting killed because I know I can kill this way too.
The guy that knifed first got the kill.
With the 2.0 knife (reduced range) I have to stand in the red dot to get the kill. Most of the time I am getting killed first because of the lag.
He would hate me on pre 2.0. I would get a knife combat ribbon every other match. I was a lightweight knife radar commando. lol. No reason to complain about it, was much "worse" before, with extended reach gone no reason to complain! in fact i think i made a thread complaining about extended reach being taken out!
ya, i got killed by a guy today that looked like he had the extended knife reach that was there pre 2.0
another time i was down looking at a bluedot who was running to heal me and a guy zipped from behind the house and knifed him. the guys' legs weren't moving or anything, he just zooped across and knifed the guy. and i know he saw the same thing cuz he died close enough so i could hear him yell lol
